But He Doesn't Know the Territory by Meredith Willson

By Meredith Willson

Composer Meredith Willson as soon as defined The tune Man as “an Iowan’s try and pay tribute to his domestic state.” by no means as soon as forgetting his roots, Willson displays at the ups and downs, surprises and disappointments, and eventually successes of the making of 1 of America’s most well liked musicals. His whimsical, personable writing type will carry readers again in time with him to the Fifties to adventure firsthand the interesting trials and tribulations of constructing a Broadway masterpiece. A newfound admiration for The tune Man—and the fellow in the back of the music—is bound to follow.
